      The tiny turn bet is mostly an indication of a made draw therefore I feel a fold is the correct decision here.

      I like shoving the flop here though as there are a lot of cards in his range which we do not want to see on the turn. And alot of these donks love calling shoves with a FD and/or pair.

      Hello Tampaloeres81!

      First of all I raise pre to 5bb so to $1.25

      Furthermore I raise his donkbet to $3 or shove accordingly since $3 is 50% of your remaining stack as played.

      I think raising to $2.5 is fine as well but then you have to shove on any Turn card.

      So either shove postflop against his 2bb donkbet or raise to $2.5 and shove any Turncard
